Birth Announcement!

Announcing the release of Steve’s first novel, The Treasure of Israel, published by Revival Nation! Here’s a peek at what it’s about:

Whatever happened to the treasures of Herod’s Temple? Their fate is shrouded in mystery.

Former art historian Michael Grammaticus, Jr. has inherited an ancient and dangerous secret—and it seems he is the last to know. When his parents are killed under suspicious circumstances, he travels to Rome to investigate, and the clues lead him to a fascinating world of ancient art, medieval manuscripts, and a dangerous mix of religion and international politics. Descended from an endless line of Greek scholars, he can’t resist being drawn into their cryptic world, and soon the same relentless forces that destroyed his father begin to hound Michael as well. He discovers not only that his father had been an outspoken advocate for Palestinian Christians, but also that one of his ancestors was the bearer of a secret that continues to haunt his family—a riddle regarding the whereabouts of the coveted treasure of Herod’s temple. This journey of discovery also becomes one of faith, as the cynical and disillusioned Michael undergoes a harrowing tribulation that leads him not just to the reasons for his father’s death, but to something far greater than the temple treasure itself.

  1. I can’t wait for the movie to come out. Tom Hanks should play the lead; it’ll make up for the DaVinci Code.

  2. I was thinking maybe John Stamos. He’s Greek like the character. Michael Constantine could play the grandfather.

  3. Im so proud of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Ditto on the proud part. Being an author is such a wonderful thing; I’m so happy for you. Now I can say I was there at the beginning, before he became famous. Seriously, I think this could be a calling for you.
